PANGBOURNE MARATHON

Although Pangbourne is not in our region we usually go because it is fairly local and a very pleasant Thames venue. It seems that paddlers from all over the country think the same way, every class was very well supported and start lines were in some cases hazardously crowded.

 

Out of the eight K1 races we won three!

Ed.Rutherford won Div. 1 with Phil 2nd.

Glenn won Div.2

Dan Porter won Div 7 (and was promoted to 6)

 

Some of our younger paddlers did very well in their races .Kayne 4th in Div 4, Luke 5th in Div 6, Ardarsh 6th in Div 8.  Ross and Elliot in Div 5 K2 did a great race against strong competition from adult crews. They took a very creditable 2nd place, promoted to 4, narrowly missing out on the win.

 

Steve (ex-chairman Williams) distinguished himself by gaining his promotion to Division 8  & also his club tee shirt. Steve came in 3 mins behind one of the most famous “novice” marathon canoeing has ever known. Second place in Div9 was taken by Steve Redgrave of rowing fame. Needless to say Mr Redgrave will be racing in Div 7 next time.
